Confirmation for 7th and 8th Graders 

Confirmation education provides an opportunity for students to dive deeper into faith and grow in relationship with God, as well as with their peers and adult “Faith Friends” of Shepherd of the Hills. We know relationships matter, so classes include time for conversation, sharing highs and lows, prayer, games, and community-building activities, as well as teaching the foundations of faith and how it connects with everyday life. Classes are held Sundays from 9:45-10:30 am.

Faith Friends

“Faith Friends” are formed through confirmation. This ministry intentionally connects an adult member of the church with two students of the same gender. Faith Friends gather regularly to get to know one another and be in faith conversations. There are also opportunities for families to gather together.

KFC is for young people who love to sing and make music to worship the Lord. It is a fun group that sings and plays a variety of styles. Students of any age and experience who can read are welcome. Rehearsals are scheduled around families’ availability. KFC sings/plays during both worship services approximately once a month. Families choose if they can be present for both or just one service.
